What’s an interior architect?
Interior architecture is a term used to describe architectural style that incorporates elements from a variety and styles.
Its a way of thinking about the building and its aesthetic that gives the building its personality.
Interiors can include interior design, landscape architecture, interior architecture design and interior design in a commercial context.
It is often used in conjunction with other architectural techniques to create a sense of style and function, for example by incorporating elements from architecture, sculpture and painting, or by blending them together.
In the past few years, the term ‘interior architect’ has been used more broadly to describe an architect who works in an interior setting, particularly in the interior of buildings and structures.
There are many types of interior architects and they can vary widely in style and level of expertise.
Here are some of the most prominent types of architectural design in Edinburgh.

A good example of an interior designer is James R. Riddle, who designed the Royal Pavilion at Edinburgh Castle in the 1930s and 1940s.
James Riddle was an interior design graduate of Edinburgh College of Art, where he studied in the Faculty of Arts and Design and received his BA in architectural design.
He was commissioned to design the Palace of Westminster for the Royal Institution of Arts, and the new National Gallery in London, in the early 1930s.
He went on to design numerous buildings for the City, including the Edinburgh Exhibition Centre, the Edinburgh Hospital, the St John’s Hospital, and numerous museums.
He was also responsible for many other buildings including the Royal Theatre, Edinburgh Zoo, and Edinburgh Castle.
His main projects were completed by the late 1960s.
Riddell has said that he wanted to create buildings for Edinburgh to live up to its status as the most cosmopolitan city in the world.
Riddle also worked on the new Olympic stadium in Glasgow, as well as a number of buildings for other major international institutions.
Many of the buildings built by James Riddle and his colleagues were designed by his sister and friend, the British architect, Louise Lopresti.
